The Gingerbread Man


In class this week (16th November 2020) Orange Class have been reading the Gingerbread Man.

There is a video attached below. 

These are some of the activities that you could try at home. 

- Make a Gingerbread Man - there are lots of recipes online, you could decorate it in a number of ways. 

- Draw three pictures that show the beginning, middle and end of the story.  

- Create a bridge for the Gingerbread man to cross the river - could you use blocks, or lego? What else could you use? 

- Can you find out what foxes like to eat? Do they just like gingerbread? Maybe you could make a poster showing us more about foxes?

- Could you design a new front cover for the book - what picture would you chose for the front? 

- Could you draw a Gingerbread Man and decorate him - maybe you have things you could decorate him with, maybe you could draw him some clothes? 

- Could you work out what floats and what sinks? Maybe you could make him a boat to help him cross the river to save him from the fox?

Jack and the Beanstalk


For this first two weeks in November we are focusing on the book 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. I have uploaded a short video and a copy of the story. 


Please read it and re read it with your child. 


Ideas for home learning - 

Draw a picture of the giant's castle and label it? Draw/create some of the rooms inside the giant's castle and label them - would they be expensive with lots of gold?

Retell the story with toys. Playmobil, Duplo, Lego - anything really! Encourage your child to think about what the different characters would say at different points of the story. 

Research the and draw the lifecycle of a bean plant. 

Find a plant outside and count how many leaves it has - compare it to a plant with less or more leaves. 


Any work you've done please photograph it and email it -
